Worcester is twinned with the communities of Kleve in Germany, Le Vesinet in France and Worcester, Massachusetts in the USA.

In 2006 Worcester entered into a friendship agreement with Vernon, in France where the Worcestershire regiment established a bridgehead in August 1944, which led to the liberation of Northern France and the Low Countries. 

In July 2010 Worcester City Council approved a new twinning arrangement with Ukmerge, Lithuania.
